"The EPS increased due to a rise in net interest income as well as investment income," said Jamuna Bank in a filing on the Dhaka Stock Exchange.
The consolidated net operating cash flow per share surged to Tk 26.34 from Tk 9.42 thanks to an increase in cash flows from operating activities.
The consolidated net asset value per share slipped to Tk 27.56 on March 31 from Tk 31.33 a year ago because of the reduction in revaluation reserve, said the filing. Shares of Jamuna Bank slipped 1.75 per cent to Tk 22.50 on the DSE yesterday.
